Matagalpa is in the hills in the central north of Nicaragua. We came here to get away from the heat of the lowlands and to fill in time over Semana Santa, Easter, when everyone gets a week off and heads to the beaches. We will stay one more day and ... Read more >

Leon, Nicaragua

Thursday, 2 Apr 2009 | Views [2195] | Comments [1]

With Easter coming we decided we should head away from the beaches where the populace of Nicaragua flood to for their week of holiday over this time. We caught a bus to Managua (40c), but having no desire to stay in the city we changed terminals by ... Read more >

We got up early to go to Moyagalpa to catch the ferry and saw our neighbours leaving, they told us that a ferry left from about 500mtrs down from where we were staying at Chico Lago so that saved us the effort of going down to the main road and catching ... Read more >

From Granada we caught a ferry across to Ometepe the biggest island in the huge Lago de Nicaragua. The trip was without problems except for the fact we left it really late to get there and were exhausted by the time we boarded by the long walk with ... Read more >

We traveled on to Esteli and found a campground for US$2 each or about 40 cordobas and they had a restaurant so we sat down to have lunch and here we made a HUGE mistake. We didn't ask how much the food was, it never occurred to any of us that it would ... Read more >

Ocotal, Nicaragua

Monday, 9 Mar 2009 | Views [940]

Our first stop in Nicaragua was in Ocotal as it was getting late by the time we got there. We found an ATM that worked with our kiwibank card luckily, some of them only work with the visa/plus cards. Dinner was a great meal of barbeque meat with a ... Read more >
